And good riddance, Honey Boo-Boo

October 24, 2014

17h26 UTC; FRIDAY, 24 OCTOBER 2014: In case you've yet to hear the news by now: TLC, in response to a report at about the mother of reality-show star (not to mention Hero and Role-Model to "REAL AmeriKKKans" from especially the dregs of Poor Whiteism) Honey Boo-Boo consorting with a Known and Notorious Sex Offender, has cancelled the next series of Here Comes Honey Boo-Boo out of an abundance of concern and caution.

This notwithstanding a whole series of episodes already having been produced beforehand.

TLC, in announcing the show's cancellation, added that it will pay for counselling and therapy sessions for the children of Honey Boo-Boo's family.

So we can do without certain conservative prolefeeders' responding by claiming that Here Comes Honey Boo-Boo's cancellation was driven by "hysterics," was "directed by President Obama" or other absurd rationales lacking credible substance, let alone the canard that such "is a slap in the face of Real AmeriKKKan Kultur" (as in the sort which sees Branson's "music shows" to be the defining standard therefor).

The last laugh, it seems, is on such specimens of Elmer Gantryism who were ballistically paranoid five years back this time about hate-crimes legislation then pending in Congress (since enacted into law) containing super-secretive clauses implying that certain religious could be arbitrarily silenced into prison camps for Preaching the Pure Saving Gospel of Jesus Christ, especially so the sort condoning homophobia, sexism and socioeconomic inequity. As it turns out, no super-secretive prison camps were established of the Parkedaal model, and no sky-pilots have been arrested or otherwise detained for Hate Crimes--yet the paranoia seems to show no signs of stopping.

Which, come to think of it, suggests serious emotional disorders aggravated by an unwillingness to face up to abuse or maltreatment at the hands of their parents, especially so the sort reeking of the sexually-coercive.

So much for blaming President Obama or his Hidden Agenda for Sears Holdings' announcing this morning that it would close 77 sub-performing Sears stores, with 5,500 jobs between them lost in the process--and, ironic as it would seem, just before the Festive Season shopping period--as per usual, lacking credible evidence apart from forgeries of the worst possible sort as can be created using Microsoft Word or similar.

Or, as Yogi Bear's indirect namesake, Yogi Berra, once said, "A nickel ain't worth a dime anymore."

In any event, even allowing for Winona State University's Homecoming this weekend (parade tomorrow morning), Your Correspondent hopes to start work on his new Hanna-Barbera fanfic blog in due time. The which I am planning to style as "It's So Hanna-Barberaesque." So do tell especially your friends as are fans of classic Saturday-morning animation seeking to placate themselves over the loss thereof from FreeVee, not to mention the imminence of Boomerang's relaunch with the New Year and same likely giving its original raison d'être of showcasing classic Hanna-Barbera and Warner Bros. animation the proverbial cold shoulder. I hope such will agree with all you subway Hanna-Barberians out there (did I just come up with a new term to refer to fans of Hanna-Barbera animation, readers?).

So till next time, folks: "73"
(Which, incidentally, was railroad telegraphers' shorthand for "goodbye.")

So how exactly do gays become "terrorists"?

October 23, 2014

17h57 UTC; THURSDAY, 23 OCTOBER 2014: By now, you may or may not have heard the claim by Pat "700 Club" Robertson that Teh Gay are, and should be considered as, terrorists Endangering Our National and Sovereign Identity as Thy Dear and Lovely Land in the same league as misguided Islamist such.

What Meneer Robertson doesn't consider is that there are "Bible-Believing Christians" whose ideology and articles of faith are as misguided as such Islamists behind the so-called "Islamic State" movement in parts of Iraq and Syria, Nigeria's Boko Haram, al-Qaeda (or what remains of it) and suchlike others. Even when you factor in where many of these misguided "Christians" must probably adore apartheid South Africa in her Luscious Glory, especially under President Hendrik Verwowerd (1961-66) in his Luscious Glory of White Christian Power and Dominion Made Flesh--as well as his martyrdom (or so certain Unreconstructed Afrikaners insist) at the hands of a wannabe aide by way of a ceremonial sword.

Or is Meneer Robertson's desire here hoping for some specimen of his "REAL AmeriKKKans" to actually invoke the "Stand Your Ground" card in excusing the outright murder or real or suspected homosexuals on the basis of such a claim (and hopefully avoid Hate Crimes charges)?

I'll pass on the Hitler coffee creamer, dear: Via the "Grub Street" portion of New York magazine's website:
A Zurich-based retailer called Migros is frantically trying to recall several thousand mini-creamer packages that were issued ostensibly to commemorate a vintage cigar band series, but ended up featuring portraits of Hitler and Mussolini. You'd have to assume that the process went something like this: Someone saw that two of the most horrible people ever once appeared on cigar bands, thought the pictures were cool, and that person was a Martian. The sets are somehow still available on the company's website for now, but production of all dictator lids has been halted for now. Migros also has said it's done doing business with the third-party supplier, Karo-Versand.

Incredibly, the company learned what it had done only after seeing a reader-submitted photo in the paper 20 Minutes. In a very true statement, a company spokesman said nostalgic Hitler and Mussolini coffee creamers weren't "images accompanying a book about World War II, but rather something meant to be enjoyed with coffee and a chocolate cake," and as everybody knows, Hitler and House Blend do not mix. "You cannot put Pol Pot or a terrorist on a milk creamer," it wrote. "It is unacceptable."

Spot the doublethink here: As in conservative prolefeeders urging Americans to Honour and Support Our Veterans--unless, after the notion of Michael "Liberalism is a Mental Disorder" Savage, they have PTSD and similar conditions, in which case they should be regarded as "crybabies" of Questionable Loyalty and Patriot Love (or as the North Koreans would label such, "Suspect/Wavering").

Kudos to the Canadian Armed Forces, in their wisdom and judgment in the wake of Recent Unfortunate Events as saw members thereof killed, for asking its members (including reservists) to not wear their uniforms in public for the time being lest they "mark" themselves as easy targets for further copycat exercises in Extreem Ultraviolence.

Finally, with its being nearly a week since the funeral of my motherdear, and the collective sorrow ensuing across my greater family in the wake of her loss, I for one think I must be grateful for not having gone all to pieces wholesale over her loss, knowing that she's had a long and wonderful trip spanning 93 years on this earth. And knowing that she was a rather wonderful woman in her own way, in her own right.

Which may explain an unlikely raison d'être I have for not just this blog, but also my forthcoming Hanna-Barbera-flavoured fanfic blog (the which I may want to start on at the weekend): As a sort of therapy à bon marché to get over my mother's loss after quite the period of feeling poorly. I hope much for it in any event.

So till next time, folks: "73"

Of lone wolves and wino crews

October 22, 2014

17h34 UTC; TUESDAY, 22 OCTOBER 2014: As I start off this blog post today, the Big Story of the Hour happens to be some Unfortunate Events in the general vicinity of Parliament Hill in the Canadian capital city of Ottawa, forcing a lockdown of Parliament. But how do we know such isn't really some class of a "false flag" attack cooked up sub rosa by the administration of Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper (Conservative) to seize power by back-door means and suspend free elections indefinitely in the name of God, Queen and Commonwealth (cf. claims conservative prolefeeders here in the United States love to make, howbeit without credible proof, against President Obama)?

So much for the notion of terrorism being unlikely in Thy Dear and Lovely Land: Your Correspondent hath it that the FBI is out with a new report which suggests that the "lone wolf" terror operative, "only following orders" and expected to seek the Luscious Glory of Martyrdom in the end, may be a much greater terrorist threat than terrorist cells operating en bloc. And as much from within as from without. Not to mention coming as much from "Christian Patriot" types as from Islamist extreemists, notwithstanding Christian Right prolefeed holding that the Good AmeriKKKan Christian is "morally incapable" of carrying out terrorist acts, deeds and exploits with martyrdom being the desideratum of the operative.

How do we know such insisting on the Keystone XL oil-sands pipeline project being constructed all the sooner pro Deo et patria aren't secretly hoping for "wino/junkie" crews being a major part of the construction workforce, especially when recruited under false pretenses from Skid Row missions, drug treatment centres and even what passes for Megabus termini in major cities to exploit the lack of mental capacity inherent in the targeted (and more often than not paid in liquor and/or narcotics "just to keep [the crews] pacified" long enough to stay motivated and get the next rations)?

And Another Thing: How many of the "jobs" expected to be created thereby aren't expected to come from the Dregs of Society on the sidelines--as in prostitutes, their pimps, loan sharks, three-card-monte dealers and the like following the construction crews mile by mile (and profiting therefrom), especially where connexions to Known and Notorious Criminal Elements come into play (and every likely measure will be taken to avoid letting slip suspicions therefor)?

The REAL "Cost of Freedom" Fox News doesn't want you knowing about: A freshly-released study hath it that Real America is actually losing, on average, about $1,700/annum/person on an average of 111 hours/person/annum in traffic delays and congestion in the daily commute while driving, especially when it comes to wasted fuel and slower travel times and speeds. Which works out to a net loss to our "morally superior" economy, predicated as it is on ons styl ekonomesie vryheid "gebore ons die Volk, die Volk te doen" and an implied "natural and mutual interconnexion" unto Our National and Sovereign Identity as a Peculiar Among the Nations by His Grace and Favour, of $122 billion in 2013 alone.

Remember, "it's YOUR money, YOUR choices, YOUR future!!"

So till next time, folks: "73"

Iludium Phosdex Dyslexic. Unemployable because of past psychosexual abuse; hence, dependent upon State charity (and trying to supplement it through the Online Mall on this site). One of The People Our Parents Warned Us About who DO happen to have opinions. Yet nonetheless opinionate, as carried out in this rather esoterically-inclined blog, this New Explosion of Pedigreed Bull on Teh Innerwebz.
